PIA members will reconnect Main Street with Capitol Hill when they convene March 26-27 in Washington, D.C. for the 2014 PIA Federal Legislative Summit (FLS). The annual PIA Federal Legislative Summit is a gathering of PIA members who come together in Washington, D.C., to meet with their Members of Congress.

PIA members will advocate on a host of issues. Members will attend a legislative briefing on the afternoon of March 26, in advance of the next day’s Capitol Hill visits. The briefing will cover several issues that Congress is currently focused on: flood insurance, healthcare and insurance regulation. The briefing will also include overviews of TRIA renewal and crop insurance, and other priority issues for many Members of Congress from various districts. Issue sheets and talking points on all of PIA’s issues will be available at the briefing, which will include an open Q-and-A session.

“PIA’s annual legislative summit is an important part of our year-round program of legislative advocacy,” said Tim Russell, chairman of the PIA National Government Affairs Committee. “There is no better way to forge and maintain relationships with lawmakers than to do it up close and personal. It gives lawmakers the opportunity to meet with Main Street insurance agents from their districts who do business with real people, in the real world.”
